Snow Peak’s new Sky Nest tent (currently only available in Japan) is the result of combining a tent, a portaledge and a hammock into a blender. What comes out is a tent that offers the practicality of a traditional tent with the comfort of a hammock and the convenience of a portaledge. A built-in shoe pocket on the underside of the tent keeps your shoes dry in the event of rain and keeps mud out of your sleeping area.
